W. Michigan Clubs Eye NPSL

Two Western Michigan clubs have their sights set on 2015 entrance to the NPSL.

Muskegon Risers SC, a new club founded in Muskegon on the banks of Lake Michigan will make a major announcement about their future plans on April 4th. It is anticipated that they will release details about the clubs ownership and potentially confirm NPSL approval for 2015. They are currently exploring home venues, and are toying with the idea of hosting home matches at different local venues as they seek to establish support throughout the greater Muskegon community.

Just 45 minutes inland, a group of soccer fans in Grand Rapids has started Grand Rapids FC ostensibly with the aim of a supporter owned club modeled after Nashville FC’s recent effort. The group is working on promoting the club and garnering interest in the Grand Rapids soccer community and will be hosting a launch party on May 3rd where they will announce more details about the club and begin offering club memberships. There is a lot of work to be done, but the group has stated that their goal is to enter NPSL competition in 2015.
